for retail crafts producers, the fall is the busiest time (in preparation for all the christmas craft fairs). for those involved in wholesale, it's early in the new year. i made the switch to wholesale a year ago so i'm still adjusting to this new rhythm. winter is a tricky time to be travelling out of newfoundland. but today, as i pack my bags to head off for halifax, it's clear blue skies. i'll be attending the atlantic craft trade show, a 3 day event that will take place this weekend. hope to see a lot of you there.
